Choice quotes from my 1st (and probably last) speed dating event:
“Wah, you’re a teacher so you must earn a lot of money!”
“Admit it, teachers have longer holidays than anybody else!”
“My hobbies include erotic dancing.”
“Ladies should subscribe to Starhub because it has more female shows than Mio TV.”
Upon learning I support Arsenal:
“Girls don’t really watch football. Which guy in your family is the real supporter?”
Because I’ve not been single for a long time, I think I’m somewhat fascinated by it, especially the whole going out to meet guys sort of thing. So if you are one of the 5 people who read my blog regularly, I think I might actually write quite a bit about this!
Anyway, I was looking through the Lovebyte’s personals – I suppose I wanted to see what all these other fish in the sea were like – and discovered that one importance criteria I have is an ability to write in decent English. It seems that nothing turns me off more than a badly written profile, or worse, one that is done in textspeak. If you write like that, I can’t imagine how you speak.
I’m clearly a language snob.
And what’s with all these men showing how much they are like their astrological profiles?
Also, I hate the design of the website.
I’ve signed up for my first SDN activity. I figured if I didn’t just take the plunge, I would never do it so I quickly filled in the form and sent it out. Now, I’m half regretting it but what’s the worst that could happen? It’s a horse riding course and that should be quite fun right?
I wanted to try a speed dating event as well since it should be an interesting experience. However, they want me to pay by cheque and I’m not opening a bank account just to pay by cheque.
HDB Lady: Hi, you were supposed to come down today to select your flat.
Me: Er yeah, we’re not buying one anymore.
HDB Lady: Oh. May I know why?
Me: Yeah, I got dumped.
HDB Lady: erm *long pause* …. ok bye.
In other news, I retrieved my SDN password and am now ready to go see what all these single activities are about.
Apparently, I’m a member of the new SDU-SDS till I’m 41 or till I get married (whichever is earlier). I don’t even know how I was recruited.
